'Take 3 Cooks' – in this case, Nanette Newman and her daughters Emma Forbes and Sarah Standing, who have joined forces to write a book full of their favourite family recipes. All three lead busy lives and often need to cook in limited time, so their recipes in 'Take 3 Cooks' are ideal for those of us who don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen, yet want something delicious for our friends and family – and ourselves!

Nanette, a keen cook for many years, encouraged her daughters to experiment in the kitchen from an early age, and both are now accomplished cooks, sharing their mother’s enthusiasm for preparing good, interesting food. Emma leads a very hectic life as a TV presenter and needs to be able to cook quickly with the minimum of fuss. Sarah has to combine a career in journalism with looking after three children, and Nanette is much in demand as a presenter and author. All three have developed very different styles and tastes along the way – but they have certain things in common. As Nanette writes, “We all hate endless hours spent in the kitchen, yet we like entertaining family and friends at home. We hate pretentious food – the sort of meals that are so complex and over-sauced that you can hardly recognise what you are eating.”

All the recipes in 'Take 3 Cooks' are chosen to meet this maxim. They are uncomplicated to prepare yet imaginative and well-presented. You are bound to find something here to suit the occasion, whether you are cooking a special evening meal or indulging in a simple snack for one. You could try something slightly unusual such as Fried Brie with Raspberry Purée or try a new variation of a traditional favourite such as Bramley Crown of Lamb. Whatever you choose, there are plenty of handy tips on how to make sure the recipes really work, and lots of ideas for saving time – essential for today’s hectic pace.

'Take 3 Cooks' is an inspiring collection of over 140 delicious, family recipes chosen for their simplicity, taste and ability to impress. Nanette, Emma and Sarah hope you find something here to suit the occasion, and that you will enjoy cooking their favourite recipes.
